tiny / enormous


L - Nikon D40x / T - Nikon D40x

The weekend was so busy we never got around to posting our photos on Saturday. But I hated to let them slide by the wayside - they're so cheerful and springy.
My mom used to collect these little flocked Kunstlerschutz German animals (they're not in production anymore). She made a merry-go-round that she put them on and brought it out for Easter - I always loved it. It had a rabbit, lion, squirrel, camel, duck, monkey, leopard, beaver, goat, horse and even a little hedgehog. I don't know what happened to the merry-go-round but I found the animals over at her house not long ago so I decided to do a little photoshoot with some of them. / i took this last year. mom doesn't usually tell me what to post but today she did say she wanted something Easter-like so i immediately thought of this photo. mom and i had been traveling back from an outlet mall, i think, and we past a parking lot filled with a lot of huge ornamention that must have been used at putt-putt courses, or the like. so of course we pulled over. i love this bunny - i call it cotton candy. it's been pretty popular at my festivals - printed really large the bunny is quite impressive and bold.
